2018 Porsche Macan

2018 Porsche Macan

The 2017 10 Best award-winning Porsche Macan is back with increased luxury, more advanced features, and impressive performance starting at just $47,800. Described as a sports car disguised as a compact SUV, the all-new Macan was made for the family that chooses not to compromise style and luxury for more space.

A Powerful Performance in a Compact SUV

The base engine is a 252-hp 2.0-liter turbo inline-four. The S trim has a 340-horsepower twin-turbo V-6, whereas the GTS makes up to 360 horsepower. All-wheel-drive and seven-speed automatic come standard on all trims. The Porsche Macan makes the 0-60 in just 6.3 seconds, an impressive feat for a family-friendly SUV.

With the 2018 Macan, you can choose between air suspension or sport suspension. Air suspension sits 15 mm lower than the alternative resulting in increased ride comfort and a dynamic performance. You may also switch ground clearance between three different levels: terrain, normal and low level. A great advantage comes with 50% lighter brake discs than standard discs of similar size and design, resulting in optimal performance and fuel economy.
